Kevin McAlpine became Martin Laird's full time caddie at the start of 2021.

Like Laird, McAlpine is Scottish and was a former Scottish Amateur Champion in his playing days.

Prior to this switch to the PGA Tour, McAlpine had been predominantly working on the LPGA Tour and he had multiple victories on Tour whilst on the bag of Lexi Thompson and Amy Yang.

McAlpine first caddied for Laird as a quick fill in whilst Laird's regular caddie was away for the birth of his child - they finished in the top 30 that week.
